experience as a nutritionist and fitness trainer, Joe has pursued his culinary career with the same zeal he practiced as a firefighter. He’s made more than 400 TV appearances on venues like Live with Regis and Kelly, Martha Stewart, Fox NY, The Today Show and Good Morning America. He’s been featured in print in The New York Times, Eating Well, Bon Appétit, and The Daily News, and has published two wellreceived cookbooks of his own, both focusing on firehouse cuisine. After spending a few years hosting a radio show down in Florida, Joe's back in the big city and ready to return to the airwaves in a big way. With Firehouse Kitchen, Joe will invite Long Island firemen to join him on the air and share recipes they would

make in their own firehouses. Joe and his guests will focus on healthy, family-oriented meals that make for better eating choices based on taste and budget awareness - all while emphasizing fire safety tips. In every episode, they’ll show viewers how to prevent both household and kitchen fires. Firehouse Kitchen will also donate funds to the Stonybrook and NYC burn centers, and will explore Long Island including visits to historical firehouses, a tour of the Blue Point Brewery, a clamming trip to Patchogue, and a whole lot more! So - got a yen for some culinary heat? It doesn't get any hotter than Firehouse Kitchen! Catch the premier on Long Island’s WLNY on October 6th, at 11:30 a.m.

In a region known for its celebrity chefs, Joseph Bonanno stands out from the crowd with his practical but utterly unique culinary perspective. You see, he's worked with fire most of his professional life: before he became a powerhouse in the kitchen, he spent 21 years in the firehouse with the FDNY. For a man whose day job was putting out flames for more than two decades, Joe is exquisitely talented at making fire work for him. He builds on his experience and talent in both fields to provide popular cooking entertainment that appeals to a wide audience, while revealing secrets of the heroic firefighter lifestyle. Everyone loves a fireman, not to mention a good meal! Leveraging past

Building Blocks Workshop Become a kid again with your own kids at the Building Blocks Workshops© hosted by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization at their Educational & Cultural Center in Stony Brook Village this fall. This is one of many upcoming events being held to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Center. With access to 60,000 LEGO® pieces, 50 families will have the opportunity to work as a team to build 50 sites. Site choices are in Stony Brook, Setauket, St. James or Port Jefferson. Participants are encouraged to build structurally sound and whimsical models that have an architectural character worthy of the history they represent. At the completion of the workshop, families will place their “LEGO® building” on a 600 sq. ft. “architectural treasure

map” and can take home a smaller version of the map. Families can use this map in the future and visit the real locations in the area. Final projects will obviously be too large to take home so be sure to bring your cameras to document your participation in this amazing event. Building Blocks Workshops© was developed by and is presented through the vision of architect, Stephen W. Schwartz, AIA. Stephen is a past President of the American Institute of Architects Newark Suburban Chapter and is a licensed Architect in NJ, NY, CT, MA, PA, DE, NC, VA, MD, & FL. This one-day-only event will take place September 23rd from 2 to 4 p.m. You must pre-register for the program which is limited to the first 50 families. Cost is $40 per family. A list of the properties and a

registration form can be found at www.wmho.org or you can call 631.751.2244.

“Visits” ing door knocks, which led to spur-of-the-moment nature hikes and abductions to breakfast venues. The morning I moved away, June sent me off with a plate of delicate Finnish pancakes. I promised ongoing visits, and returned to their home for dinners, talks and bear hugs in their yellow-tiled foyer, year after year after year, for ten sweet years. Now, June and Ralph, the birds (and there’ve been generations of them), are regulars in my yard. Morning and evening, these crimson puppeteers use radar, charm and invisible marionette strings to pull me from the walnuts on my countertop to the back porch railing. They “chip chip chip” outside my bedroom window at dawn, flutter near the kitchen window while I

make coffee, and, when my car zips into the driveway, fly over the rooftop to wait out back for their nuts. The original Ralph snatched his walnut from the railing while June hid in a nearby branch, awaiting his return from market. Sometimes he’d snack on the steps before flying back to feed June, beak to beak. But once, and only once, in January 2006, the original June appeared calmly, right next to Ralph, on the steps. That was the afternoon I returned from the veterinarian after having to put my fifteen year-old cat to sleep. When I leaned against the back door window to gaze into the yard, there they were, en pair, like a protective hug. Back in 1974, at the conclusion of sixth grade, the class parents collected money

for a present for Ralph and June. Knowing full well that these super-teachers would use a gift certificate to enrich their classrooms instead of themselves, the moms decided to give them something concrete, to keep. They chose a statue of a nature scene, its wooden base inscribed: “To the Laakkonens, for total dedication, from your outdoor learning classes, 1973 - 1974.” Ralph and June did keep that statue, front and center, in the bay window of their house. After they died, I passed by one day when the house was being shown to buyers. The real estate agent allowed me to step into the yellow-tiled foyer and walk through the house one last time. It was empty, except for a few items awaiting cleanup by their grown children. Still there: the statue. Realizing it had no specif-

ic meaning to their kids, I called, asked, and was graciously given, after all those years, a gift I’d seen presented to beloved teachers when I was only just eleven. It’s in my home, now, in a place of honor. A statue of a nature scene: a mother cardinal, feeding her babies, taking care of the young. The same thing that’s happening in my yard, year after year after year. By now, the original Ralph and June cardinals have passed on. Their children, today’s Ralphs and Junes, have become progressively more comfortable with the back door/railing arrangement. Even the females. A few days ago, a new June fluttered midair, near the center panel of the nine-paned door, just twelve inches from me. While I opened up to place a walnut on one rail,

she watched from the other, and grabbed the nut before I’d even closed the door. I, like you, have suffered many losses. But I know (I do) that we really don’t leave each other. I believe that here, in life, we’re all out walking, on a great nature hike. The people who’ve died have “gone on ahead,” just a little further along up the trail. Of course, we’ll all get the chance, when the time is right, to “catch up.” While we’re here, though, our job (our joy) is to be who we really are, and to do what we really came to do. Like Ralph and June. And, on any good nature trail, while the people must travel it step after step, the birds are free to fly back and forth. And back again, for visits in time.

After my friends Ralph and June died within months of each other in 2003, a pair of cardinals appeared in my yard. Since they’d adored cardinals, and each Christmas sent cards depicting snowscapes lit by two tiny red birds, I named the rubyfeathered couple after them. Thereafter, the birds claimed a table at the finest outdoor restaurant in suburbia, and to this day, order the daily special: organic walnuts from Trader Joe’s. The human, June, first appeared in my life in 1973, as my sixth grade teacher, and two decades later, in 1994, as my cherished friend, when the Universe became a real estate broker, and placed me in an apartment right next door to her house. For eight months, I luxuriated in June and her husband Ralph’s Sunday-morn-


On Friday, August 17th, Legislator Sarah Anker attended the second annual countywide farmers market at the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center in Yaphank. Grown On Long Island Day featured fresh local produce, seafood, vegetables & fruit, wine, perennials, cheeses and jams. Visitors also toured a century old working farm and met with local farmers and artisans. The New York Sea Grant held a

Chef Seafood ThrowDown where two local chefs prepared dishes using ingredients exclusively available at the market. Additionally, Island Harvest conducted a food drive in support of communities in need. “Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Family Health and Wellness program continues to provide innovative and interesting ways to demonstrate the importance of healthy and fresh produce,” said Legislator Anker. “The

event also provided our community with an array of opportunities to support local farmers.” Grown on Long Island Day is sponsored by the Long Island Farm Bureau, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk, NY Sea Grant, Island Harvest, Long Island Wine Council, Harbor View Foods, Peconic Land Trust, Farm Credit East, J. Kings, Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance and Edible East End.

Much Ado About “Nothing” By: Jamie Lynn Ryan Apparently, according to some, I write about “nothing” week after week. This sentiment, in the form of a threepage letter from a reader, arrived on my desk this morning and, rather than let it go and write what was intended to be a positive article, I have decided to address it. First off, writers – or at least the good ones – write for their audiences. First rule of Journalism. If you work for a hard-hitting investigative daily newspaper, well then, the content you produce should have a similar feel. If you write for a fluff-filled monthly magazine, likewise, you would be advised to adjust your tone accordingly. Here, where our audience is

made up of Long Island community members interested in reading about the local happenings at their schools and libraries, upcoming meetings and events, and the recent achievements of their friends and neighbors… well that’s a very specific, unique demographic now, isn’t it? It would be virtually impossible to cater to each and every person out there and their individual expectations; and yes, sometimes my columns may be about “nothing” in particular – just a human interest, weekly feature, usually drawn from personal experiences, that hopefully strikes a chord with the general population. To criticize that concept as a whole is to be severely misinformed about what this newspaper is, what type of content we pro-

mote and what the majority of our audience appreciates. That said, I hope that this particular reader – who, for all her bitter hatred of this column, apparently still feels the need to read it each and every week – now understands the medium, and the intended message, at least a little better. Sometimes, “nothing” is just as good as something… I believe there was a fairly successful TV show which was modeled on precisely this concept at one point. Just because something doesn’t interest you does not make it uninteresting. And if you don’t even take the time to explore those things which are outside of your accepted norm, well then, I suppose you’ll never know what you might be missing out on.

Environmental Conservation supported Long Island Invasive Species Management Area (LIISMA) has awarded The Town of Brookhaven and WMHO grants to eradicate the Pepperweed. The infestations at West Meadow Peninsula in Setauket are the first known on Long Island and this variety is considered an Early Detection/Rapid Response (EDRR) species that threatens the salt marsh ecosystem. WMHO will inform the public during its educational programs throughout the year about the

Pepperweed, methods of removal and how to keep it contained so it does not spread to other parts of Long Island. WMHO’s Youth Corps is a student volunteer group, grades 6-12, from the Three Village area and beyond who continue the good works of philanthropists Ward and Dorothy Melville who were dedicated to preserving local history and caring for the environment. To become a Youth Corps member or for further information call 631.751.2244.

On September 29th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Stony Brook (UUFSB) is holding a community tag sale to bring sellers and buyers together for mutual benefit and the re-use of quality items. This is the third year that the non-profit religious organization has held these sales, which serve to keep usable items out of landfills, conserve resources, provide income for sellers and bargains for families, and raise money

for UUFSB as well. May’s CommUUnity Tag Sale featured more than 40 sellers offering handcrafted jewelry, books, clothing, appliances, toys, games, sports equipment, tools and more. Hundreds of buyers found treasures at greatly reduced prices, while enjoying themselves in the outdoors in a friendly environment. This event will be similar, and will offer food, baked treats, and a 50/50 raffle as well. Entrance to the Tag Sale

is free for buyers. Sellers can reserve an 8x18 foot (approx.) space for $25 (two for $40) by calling 631.751.0297. This is an excellent way to clean out a basement, garage or attic, while putting good items back into use and benefitting everyone. The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is located on 380 Nicolls Road in East Setauket, between Rte 347 and Rte 25A, northbound side, just north of the Fire Station. For more information, call 631.751.0297.

from Hicksville, Sound Beach, Brentwood and Carle Place, among others, were in attendance. There was a game that pitted VP’s and executives from Estée Lauder against a team of assemblers. Another squad was made up of employees of the company’s plant in Pennsylvania, who rented a bus and left at 5 a.m. to be on Long Island for the event. “At the end of the day, we had a lot of fun and accomplished our goal of raising money and awareness for breast cancer research,” Carlos added. “As employees of Estée Lauder Companies, we are very committed to Mrs. Evelyn Lauder’s vision to find a cure for breast cancer. It was great to see the parents, coaches and players embrace that as well. We have formed a great relationship with the LIJSL, the Soccer Park staff and the referees, and we hope to do even more together in the future.” This is the eighth year that the friendly games have taken place at the Peter Collins Soccer Park, which is donated by the LIJSL for the event. It is the first year that youth teams have taken part, and there are future plans

being discussed for a women’s division and a clinic for younger players. The $1,700 raised on August 19th adds to the more than $8.5 million that the Estée Lauder Company has raised for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and fundraising efforts will continue right through October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Statistics have shown that one out of nine Long Island women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. LIJSL players, coaches and families also contributed to the Peter Collins Soccer Park Food Drive during the Spring Season and the league was able to donate 811 pounds of food to Long Island Cares. “On behalf of all of the children and families served by Long Island Cares, Elana Sissons, Food Drive Coordinator, and I are truly grateful to the LIJSL for your support,” said Paule Pachter, Executive Director of Long Island Cares. “This donation will go a long way towards ensuring that more Long Island children and families do not go hungry.”

The Suffolk County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (SCCADV) recently received a $7,000 grant from Macy’s. The company’s generosity will significantly offset the costs of providing vital legal servicesto nonabusive parents seeking aid through Family Court.

community,” said the group’s Executive Director Jo Anne Sanders. She added that Macy’s has provided funds to SCCADVfor several years. In recognition of the company’s support, Macy’s will be honored as SCCADV’s 2012 Corporate Sponsor at the organization’s upcoming Awards Reception. “Macy’s believes in giving back to local communities.

The Stony Brook University School of Medicine Class of 2016 officially entered the world of medical training on August 19 at the School’s traditional “White Coat” ceremony. All 124 students with varied educational and professional backgrounds and from 61 colleges and university nationwide put on their new physician-intraining white coat and took the Hippocratic Oath for the first time. Held at Stony Brook since 1998, the White Coat ceremony is an initiation rite for incoming medical students at established medical schools around the country. The white coat is symbolic to medicine as a profession based on professionalism, scientific excellence, responsibility, and compassionate care. To accommodate the growing medical needs and specialized care for the U.S. population, the Association of American Medical Colleges recognizes the need to train more physicians in coming years. “Wearing the white coat brings with it much responsibility, as a caregiver, problem-solver, scientist and communicator,” said Kenneth Kaushansky, MD, MACP., Senior Vice President for the Health Sciences, and Dean, School of Medicine. “I promise you, your path in medicine will never be dull, filled with opportunities to help transform the lives of countless patients. The Class of 2016 comes to Stony Brook equipped with a myriad of talents, interests, humanity and academic success, all of which will serve you well in your medical journey that starts with your Stony Brook Medicine white coat.” During the ceremony, Stony Brook University School of Medicine also recognized its 2012 Distinguished Alumnus – Dr. Douglas S. Katz, ’90, Director of Body Imaging and Vice Chair for Clinical Research and Education at Winthrop-University Hospital, and Professor of Clinical Radiology at Stony Brook

White Coat Ceremony University School of Medicine. Eager to begin their medical training, the new students recognized that they will have many challenges in medical school and felt excited about entering a career devoted to helping people. “As a child, I had two dreams, to become a professional soccer player and a doctor,” said Marshall Leonard, a Columbus, Ga., native who played Major League Soccer for six years after graduating from the University of Virginia with a BA in African & AfroAmerican Studies. “My focus and energy is now on medicine, and I am honored to be a member of the

Stony Brook Class of 2016.” Another athlete who expects to bring his passion for excellence from the playing field to medical clinics is Michael Coulter from Yorba Linda, Calif., who played quarterback for the Stony Brook Seawolves in 2011 graduated with a BS in Biochemistry. “I came to Stony Brook as an undergraduate because of its strong scientific reputation, the opportunity to play college football, and to study in a unique place away from home,” said Coulter. “I have observed the momentum of Stony Brook Medicine in recent years and am excited about the opportunities to study and

contribute to the institution as a medical student. I know I will be challenged and stretched to my capacity, thus making me the best physician possible.” Following a traditional route based on scientific research and education, Michelle Mo, from Berkeley Heights, N.J., who has a BA in Biology from Washington University, and a MS and PhD in Pharmacology from Yale University, will expand her scientific expertise to include patient care as a physician-scientist when she completes medical school. “The idea of becoming a physician-scientist so I can continue to conduct research in areas related to biomarkers of disease, plus combine that with new skills as a clinician, is an exciting prospect for making an immediate impact on patients’ lives,” said Mo. Eve Feinberg, a native Long Islander who grew up in Rockville Center, took a circuitous route to pursuing medicine. Most recently, Feinberg was a theatre artist and set designer with a BA and MFA in Theatre from Barnard College and the University of Maryland, respectively. Feinberg said that the great attention to detail, organization, and human ingenuity involved in the theatre arts is not unlike that developed in successful hospital settings. “I took a non-linear path to medicine, and that process taught me to understand myself and prepared me to begin a life-long commitment to medicine,” said Feinberg, who also overcame visual impairment as a child and young adult before deciding to become a doctor. In 2012 the School of Medicine received an all-time high of 4,918 applicants. Among the 124 incoming students, their cumulative grade point average is 3.7 on a scale of 4.0. Two of the most common undergraduate schools attended by the incoming class were Stony Brook University (22) and Cornell University (8).

Clear Up The Clutter (NAPSI)—While many homeowners complain that they don’t have enough space, they may have more than they think. Surprisingly, according to a survey by the American Cleaning Institute, most clutter in the home is really the result of disorganization. “The majority of people have plenty of space, they just aren’t using the space wisely or efficiently,” explains Perri Kersh, a

professional organizer, owner of Neat Freak and member of the National Association of Professional Organizers. “The attic, for example, is an ideal place for storing certain infrequently used items such as holiday decor.” Organizational products can help you make better use of valuable space that is otherwise wasted. The new AtticMaxx™ Shelving System, for example, provides organized attic

space and easy access to stored items. The shelf system mounts between attic trusses—the triangular wooden structures used to support a pitched roof—to create vertical storage space around an attic floor. It installs in minutes with a screwdriver, a level and four screws. Visit www.AtticMaxx.com for more information and free organizing tips.

Setting The Stage (NAPSI)—With a flood of real estate listings on the market, sellers continuously search for ways to stand out. The process is called staging. Done correctly, it can make a house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer and make homebuyers want to buy it. To help, here are some tips: • Curb Appeal: The exterior of the house is the first thing potential buyers see; make sure it’s bright, clean and inviting.

• Clean: Clean from top to bottom, getting rid of clutter and organizing the space. Don’t forget the ceilings and fans. • Brighten Up: Do what you can to help buyers envision living in the space. Make sure windows are streak free. Hide personal pictures. Instead, decorate with fresh flowers. • Living Space: Choose neutral tones for the walls and furniture. Slipcovers are an inexpensive way to spruce up old furniture. Add pillows for pops of

Ocean To Sound Relay The Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay starts at Jones Beach State Park and finishes on the grounds of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay. 150 eightperson teams will navigate their way through 15 different Long Island townships starting in Wantagh, traveling through Seaford, Massapequa Park, Massapequa, Farmingdale, Old Bethpage, Plainview, Woodbury, West Hills, crossing into Huntington and hitting the Long Island Sound in Lloyd Harbor, returning to Nassau County via Cold Spring Harbor and Syosset, reaching Oyster Bay Cove, and finally hitting Oyster Bay. “The Ocean to Sound Relay endures because it is a unique race drawing runners from the entire tri-state area,” said Linda Armyn, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy, Bethpage Federal Credit Union. “The organizational talents of the Greater Long Island Running Club and the Ocean to Sound Relay Director Alan End continue to amaze us here at Bethpage and our teams are eager to participate again this year.” There are 13 different categories for runners including men’s, women’s, mixed open, men’s masters, women’s masters, mixed masters, men’s seniors masters, women’s seniors masters, corporate, law

enforcement/firefighter, physically challenged, one person team and Bethpage. A gala post race party affectionately called the “Best Post-Race Party in the Northeast” will take place immediately following the relay at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park on the shoreline of beautiful Oyster Bay Harbor near the finish line, where awards will be presented in each of the individual categories to each member of the top three teams in each category. “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is dedicated to finding cures for blood cancers and to expanding health services and support to patients and families. Our community is exceedingly grateful to the Greater Long Island Running Club and to Bethpage for their commitment,” said Tammy Philie, Executive Director, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Long Island Chapter. The entry fee for the Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay is $360 per team ($45 per runner) through September 16th, which covers entry into the race, a special commemorative t-shirt for each runner, and entry into the postrace party. If received between September 17th and September 22nd, the entry fee is $400 per team. No day of race entries will be accepted. For more information, or to register, go to www.glirc.org.

Understanding Small Loans

(NAPSI)—For many, the answer to a financial dilemma can come from asking the right questions. To help, a public interest organization has come up with four quarterly booklets, with worksheets and self-assessment information, for those considering personal loans. The first, “Understanding Personal Loans,” helps potential borrowers find answers to six important questions:

• Is a personal loan for me? • Can I afford a loan? • What happens when I apply? • What happens if I’m late with a payment? • What terms should I understand before taking out a loan? • Which laws protect me? This financial literacy initiative that aims to educate the more than 30 million underbanked households in the U.S.

about short-term, smalldollar loans was launched by the American Financial Services Association Education Foundation. The materials are online at www.afsaef.org/personallo ans101. Printed versions are available from the American Financial Services Association Education Foundation, 919 Eighteenth Street, NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC, 200065517; (202) 466-8611.

GRANT RECEIVED - For the ninth year, the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program is a beneficiary of the Long Island 2 Day Walk To Fight Breast Cancer, receiving a grant of $37,500. The funds received assist the breast cancer program in its Paths To Wellness Program, a series of workshops for breast cancer patients. Since its inception in 2004, LI2DAY has raised and awarded over three million dollars to local breast cancer nonprofit organizations such as the Adelphi program, scientific research and the LI2DAY Scholarship Fund.


survivor Jean Larsen of Stony Brook and her colleague, Walter Hurney. Since its inception in 2007 the golf outing has raised more than $267,000. “Just in the year 2011 alone we raised more than $54,000 for women in our community, helping 26 patients with 49 procedures,” said Larsen. “That includes mammograms, breast ultrasounds, biopsies, breast surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

“Since Long Island has one of the nation’s highest rates of breast cancer, it is crucial that we all help our neighbors in this fight. Breast cancer affects every family member physically, emotionally and financially.” For information or to register, go to www.thepinkrock.org or call Laura Juliano, Public Affairs Department, Mather Hospital, at 631.476.2723.

clean with: Never use ammonia—based products-or cleaners containing vinegar, lemon or orange—on your granite countertops. Avoid abrasive cleaners such as dry or soft cleansers. Don’t use cleaning products that contain acid such as bathroom, grout, or tub and tile cleaners. Specialty granite cleaners can be used, but they can be expensive. There’s a way to stretch your dollars. • Mind your budget: JAWS Glass & Hard Surface Cleaner (www.jawscleans.com) cleans granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass and even your flat-screen TV. It’s also non-toxic and costs less than most other

cleaners because each JAWS product is actually two bottles in one. (The cartridge refill is attached to the bottle.) There are also some other basic preventive measures you can take to protect your granite countertops: • Use coasters: Place a coaster under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices that can etch or dull the surface of many stone countertops. • Use trivets or mats: They’ll protect your granite countertop from hot dishes and help avoid scratches. Granite countertops can really add spark to a kitchen or bathroom. Proper care will keep them looking beautiful.

(NAPSI)—Even with the U.S. unemployment rate high, technicians and skilled trade workers top the list of the hardest jobs to fill, according to a Manpower Group talent shortage survey. This gap in today’s competitive job market can be a great opportunity for those who are considering attending a trade or technical school over a traditional college or university. Specifically targeting this high-skilled worker need, one organization has introduced a Career Education Grant Program to provide a one-time $1,000 grant to members and their eligible dependents toward enrollment and attendance at an accredited trade or

(NAPSI)—Granite countertops are the most popular option available when it comes to kitchen or bathroom remodeling. They look great, they’re durable, but they can also cost thousands of dollars. Granite requires special care and attention because it’s a natural stone. Here are a few tips to help you protect your investment: • Seal your countertops: According to the Marble Institute of America, an industry group, granite countertops should be sealed so that the stone is more resistant to dirt and spills. Check with the manufacturer or retailer about the best kind of sealer to use on food preparation areas. • Be careful what you

Potential Signs That Care Is Needed (NAPSI)—Identifying the changes in physical and mental abilities that often occur with age is crucial to providing the best support possible for an aging loved one. Any of the following behaviors may indicate the need to take action— starting with notifying the older adult’s physician: • Changed eating habits, loss of appetite

• Neglected personal hygiene; dirty clothes, nails, hair or body • Inappropriate behaviors, such as being unusually loud, quiet, paranoid or agitated • Decreased or stopped participation in activities that were once important • Forgetfulness • Mishandled finances or unusual purchases. The Eldercare Locator is

a free national service that connects older adults and their caregivers with local aging resources like transportation, meal programs, in-home support services and more. To get connected, contact the Eldercare Locator at 800-677-1116 or visit www.eldercare.gov.

Common Car Seat Mistakes Parents Should Avoid (NAPSI)—Parents of young children need to be better educated in order to avoid making potentially dangerous safety mistakes when they are on the go. The Problem Automobile crashes remain a leading cause of death for children and it’s important that parents consistently and correctly use the appropriate car seat to keep their child passengers safe. Many parents may be unknowingly endangering their children as three out of four car seats are not used correctly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some Answers Busy parents and caregivers may be tempted by safety shortcuts when transporting children. AAA offers simple reminders to protect parents’ most precious cargo. Shortcut: “I’m only

driving a mile from home, so my son doesn’t need to be secured in his car seat since it’s a short trip.” Reminder: You should buckle up properly on every trip—no matter the distance—especially since most crashes occur close to home. Shortcut: “I’m picking up several kids after soccer practice and I’m going to put my 8-year-old daughter in the front seat so all the children can fit into the car.” Reminder: All children under age 13 are safest when riding in the backseat and properly restrained in a car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Shortcut: “We will be driving more people in our car than we have seat belts. Since it’s a short trip, it’s not a big deal for someone to ride on another person’s lap.” Reminder: It’s never safe to ride on another person’s lap. Each

passenger should be properly restrained on every trip. Shortcut: “My son is 10 years old and 4’6” tall. He’s big enough to use a seat belt now.” Reminder: The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends children continue to use beltpositioning booster seats until they are 4’9” and the seat belt fits properly. Help For Parents Fortunately, AAA experts are available to help parents with car seat installation. Visit an AAA club, go to www.seatcheck.org or call (866) SEATCHECK [(866) 732-8243].
